Humanity depends on nature to continue to live and thrive. Nature provides many of the necessities of life including but not limited to clean water, clean air and healthy foods—yet inequitable access to nature can prevent all people from fairly benefiting from nature’s benefits. This session will bring together leading cities that are safeguarding biodiversity while ensuring nature’s services are open to all community members. Attendees will hear from community-based organizations, mayors and experts who are Greening America’s Cities, with lessons for communities across the world.
